I have a question for you, dear readers, and would appreciate responses in the comments. The question is what is globalization?
Don't go to your Stiglitz, Held, Giddens, Rosenau, etc. or Wikipedia for the response. I know all that stuff. I'm really interested in what your own immediate working definition is.
I've written quite a bit already on globalization (beyond blogland), but one thing globalization theorists often do is make reference to a vague and perhaps necessarily unempirical notion of a publicly shared idea of globalization.
If you're an expert, by all means let me know what you think. But especially if you're not, I'm very interested in hearing what you have to say.
